Lunch Recipe Ideas for Kids {& A FREE DOWNLOAD!}

There is plenty to be stressed about with school moving to online learning for the foreseeable future without having to worry about lunch recipes everyone! I’m on a mission to help my kids prepare their own lunches each school day! It will be a fun way to break up class time and also give me a little break since I do prepare a hot breakfast and our family dinner.

I asked you all on Instagram what your kids eat for lunch and compiled a nice checklist that we can all use for ideas! I am going to print and laminate mine to keep in the kitchen were we can all see it.
